Leveling 2010 F250

Can someone answer some questions about leveling a Super Duty with stock suspension and 20" rims with 34" tires?

It current;y sits fairly level...about an inch lower in the front than the rear. Many leveling packages I am considering are adding 4" blocks in the rear (to replace 2" stock blocks) and 2 1/2" leveling in the front. I am thinking of raising mine one additional inch in the rear and the 2" in front?

Does anyone offer 3" blocks for the rear? I have heard that the F350 stock blocks are 3"? I could go with those if I can come up with 2" leveling for the front? Any advice will be appreciated.

If you wanted just to Level the front Bilstein offers a 2 1/2 inch kit for it:

This seems to be the way most our customers with f-250's go. As for the rear blocks I do not know for sure we don't deal much with blocks.

Shocks do not lift the pickup, they are only there to dampen. Going with a longer shock is not a bad idea to restore the travel to the suspension but you are not going to obtain lift out of replacing the shocks alone.


As far as blocks go, we fabricate our own steel blocks in house in 1/2" increments.

As for the front, we also fabricate leveling spacers in the same increments.

A 2.5" leveling kit and 4" blocks for the rear will put you level and is your best option. I suggest going with an ICON 2.5" kit with 4" blocks, and an adjustable track bar. The ride and functionality of the truck will be greatly improved with this kit.
